100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong - CD 2 (2004)

Garageland
Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora

I read the paper just the other day
About a buddy of mine who headed to an early grave
They say he went in his sleep
With a smile on his face
Bet he was dreaming 'bout those better days
When the crash of the drums
Hit like the waves on a beach
That cheap bass and guitar and our wildest dreams
We were searching for a savior like anybody else
Trying to save ourselves from ourselves

Chorus:
Just a garage band
We weren't alive
We were livin' in Garageland

Our parents all held jobs but we had other plans
We acted like our heroes
They just didn't understand
We were never afraid to fall
It was us and those four walls

Chorus:
Just a Garage band
We weren't alive
We were livin' in Garageland

Nothing ever felt so right
Just us, those guitars
And a Saturday night

- guitar solo -

Cuz with a strap on your back, you have wings on your feet
You felt like a king when you walked down the street
We heard those old records, and knew we belonged
When the drums hit the groove, we'd all sing along

Chorus:
Just a Garage band
We were livin' in Garageland
Just a Garage band
We weren't alive, we were livin' in Garageland

Nothing else felt so right
It was us, those guitars
And a Saturday night

Starting All Over Again
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Desmond Child

I've been waiting, standing in the dark for hours
Tryin' to find the faith and the power to get back home to you
It's been a long time, long time since I've seen your face
On and on I could not replace the fire that burns for you
So here's to the good times, here's to the bad
Here's to the memories that we all had
Here's to tomorrow, let yesterday pass us by

Chorus:
Tonight we'll be starting all over again
And it feels like the first time
I'll never feel this way again
Starting all over again

Do you remember, remember the odds we were given
When we had nothing and we thought that was living
It's been such a long, long road…
Here's to our old friend who helps us get by
Here's to the dreamers, may dreams never die
If we believe we can all keep the good times alive

Chorus:
Tonight we'll be starting all over again
It feels like the first time
I'll never feel this way again
One more night, we'll be starting all over again
It feels like the first time
I know whenever we're together my friend
It's like starting all over again

- guitar solo - 

Chorus:
Tonight we'll be starting all over again
It feels like the first time
I'll never feel this way again
One more night, we'll be starting all over again
It feels like the first time
I know whenever we're together my friend
It's like starting all over again

I've been waiting, standing in the dark for hours
Trying to find the faith and the power to start it all over again

Maybe Someday
Bon Jovi, Sambora

And I would give up tomorrow
And die for one yesterday
I'd lie, beg, steal and borrow
To hear you whisper my name
Tonight there ain't no miracles
Washing up on this beach
The angels left here long ago
But I still believe that

Chorus:
Maybe someday
I will hold your hand
Maybe some way
We'll trace our footsteps in the sand
And just walk away… maybe someday

Now I don't know how a heart beats
But I sure know how one breaks
Remember how I used to hold you
To share every breath that you'd take
How can I forget
You're every tear that I cry
I know you're coming back
You never kissed me goodbye

Chorus:
Maybe someday
I will hold your hand
Maybe some way
We'll trace our footsteps in the sand
And just walk away

They say that nothing lasts forever
But we know our two hearts beat together
And though you're far away
Every night I pray
Maybe someday, someday…

- guitar solo - 

Chorus:
Maybe someday
I will understand
Maybe some way
We'll trace these footsteps in the sand
And just walk away
Maybe someday
Maybe someday
Maybe someday
Maybe someday

Last Chance Train
Bon Jovi, Mark Hudson

October leaves are falling, so am I
A harvest moon is calling me and I know why
The traffic's like a symphony in blue
In the autumn air I smell your sweet perfume
I miss you sitting cross-legged in this empty room
Yesterdays are eating me alive
I'm your angel, baby - I've got broken wings
I can't walk, I can't run, I can't drop 
until you're next to me, so the only thing…

Chorus:
You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train
Leave a flower the station, I know my destination
Love bring me home again

You try to reach me but I've sailed away
You tried to read me but my words got in the way
The music's over but the dance has just begun
I wish that I could just get back to Baltimore
You know I'd scratch, I'd claw, I'd scream 'til I'm raw,
just to fall down at your door

Chorus:
You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train
Leave a flower at the station, I know my destination
Love bring me home again

Let the scarecrows laugh coming down the tracks
At the broken hearts that don't come back
'Cause the train has left the station with my pain
Let them forget my name, oh…
I'm on a last chance train

- guitar solo - 

Sitting here I smoke my nineteenth cigarette
Now all that's left are ashes, butts and my regrets
It's your taste that I just can't forget

You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train

Let the scarecrows laugh coming down the tracks
At the broken hearts that don't come back
We'll be laughing at them, crying in the rain
It's you and I again, oh..

Chorus:
You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train
Leave a flower at the station, I know my destination
Love bring me home again

I'm on a last chance train
It's gonna bring me home to you
Oh, the last chance train
Running through veins
This time I'm coming through,
coming through

Last chance
Last chance
Last chance
Last chance

Fire Inside
Bon Jovi

Silver bullet in the wild blue
Crack in the walls I'm coming through
Think you can stop me, well take a look in these eyes
You can't cage what you can't tame
There ain't no rules, this ain't a game
There's no way to stop the fire inside, yeah
You can escape a pouring rain
You can run for shelter in a hurricane
Change your face, lose your name
Lie about things you can't explain
But there's one thing that you cannot deny

Chorus:
The fire inside
The fire inside
You can't run from what's in your blood
and you can't hide
From the fire inside
The fire inside

Tonight I'll run I need no sleep
When it feels this good you're in too deep
In blood I'm gonna write my name, cover my tracks I feel no shame
Just let 'em try and stop the fire inside

Chorus:
The fire inside
The fire inside
You can't run from what's in your blood
and you can't hide
The fire inside, the fire inside
It's the only way you know you're still alive
The fire inside, the fire inside
Yeah

-guitar solo - 

There's no place for me in heaven
Tonight I just might die
There'll be no one to hold my hand
For me no one will cry
There'll be no forgiveness,
but I'll never deny

Chorus:
The fire inside
The fire inside
You can't run from what's in your blood
and you can't hide
The fire inside
The fire inside
It's the only way to know 
you're still alive
The fire inside
The fire inside
The fire inside
The fire inside
It's the fire inside
The fire inside
The fire inside
The fire inside
Oh-oh

Every Beat Of My Heart
Bon Jovi, Sambora

As a hard rain beats down in the night it sounds like applause
Still I can't hear a sound with the beat of my heart
I can't pick up that phone anymore and I need to confess
If I don't say 'I love you' everything else is a waste of my breathe

Chorus:
Every beat of my heart I would give
Every beat of my heart just to live
To live for your love, if all that I want
Is to die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart

As I whisper your name I wish you were here by my side
And the only way that I find you is when I close my eyes
With my ring on your finger I hope and I pray
That you know deep in your soul with every step that you take

Chorus:
Every beat of my heart I would give
Every beat of my heart just to live
I live for your love, if all that I want
Is to die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart

It's the little things that you do that make me want you more
It's the way your hands are trembling but what they trembling for?
It's the way the smile fits on your lips
The way you hold me tight
God knows I'd give everything to be in your arms tonight

Chorus:
I live for your love, it's all that I want
Is to die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart
Just to live
Every beat of my heart, just to live
I live for your love, it's all that I want
To die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart

Rich Man Livin' In A Poor Man's House
Bon Jovi, Dave Stewart

Billy works too hard, trying to make ends meet
He's gotta pay his credit cards,
yeah he's been dealing with the odds that even Vegas can't beat

By six he's out of bed, she makes his coffee sweet
He grabs his boots & his coat, leaves a note that says I Love You
And runs to catch a bus down at the end of Market Street

Chorus:
It took some time to figure it out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
He might be down, but he ain't out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house

Every night at home, feels like it's Christmas Eve
Gracie's got his dinner on the stove, Daddy's coming home
And they've got seven hungry children that are tugging on his sleeve

Chorus:
It took some time to figure it out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
He might be down, but he ain't out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house

Every night at five when work lets out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house

He arrives at 9 as the work bell's ringing
Hits the grind but his heart is singing

Some men live for money
Some men live for work
But it's a real man, a richer man who knows what love's worth

Chorus:
It took some time to figure it out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
He might be down, but he ain't out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house

Every night at five when work lets out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
Sha-la, la, la, la, la, la, la
A rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house
Uh huh, oh yeah, uh huh, huh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Uh huh, oh yeah, uh huh, hey

The One Who Got Away
Bon Jovi, Sambora

If I, I could be anyone
Could I, I be your only one?
If I, I could be anything
Could I be the secret you keep
Breath that you breathe
Your dreams while you sleep?
If you, if you could read my mind
Then you, you'd now I crossed that line
I'd make you my Valentine
I can't let you go but I know
That this ring is there to remind

Chorus:
So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
And you'll be the one who got away

Now I'm chasing headlights back home
And you, you're sitting there on your own
When we were sippin' martinis
I started believing I wouldn't be leaving alone
Well I told you a joke and you laughed
When I asked you to dance
You said there's no band, there's no radio
I got up real slow, started singing real low
When I was melting in your arms I had to let go

Chorus:
So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
And you'll be the one..

If there was no tomorrow
There was no yesterdays (no yesterdays)
The stolen moments we've borrowed
We wouldn't let slip away

Chorus:
So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero

So let's re-enact that scene
Until our dying day
I'll be the hero
And you can be the one
Yeah, you could be the one
that got away

You Can Sleep While I Dream
Bon Jovi, Hudson, Dean Grakal

Your boy sits down to write a song
'cause he thinks he's got something to say
Innocence thinks it can change the world
but the world keeps getting in the way
It's a small list for the optimist 
who believes that he can fly
In a long line full of pessimists
to stop him every time he tries
Some people see things as they are and ask,"why?"
I dream things that never were, 
I take my shot and say, "why not?"

Chorus:
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I aint' breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

Convicted by convictions, 
they were carving out your cross
They came to take your measurements
just to show you who's the boss
Until I reach that promised land I won't stop
When I get there I'll shake your hand
so meet me on that mountaintop

Chorus:
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I aint' breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the breathing
(Hey, hey, hey) Forgotten and the bleeding
Get out of my way
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels, I got demons
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

I'm not suggesting that you fly with me
Well here's a dose of some reality
You're swinging at a change-up,
boy you better shape up,
here comes the wrecking ball
Good morning, here's your wake-up call

- guitar solo - 

Chorus:
(Hey, hey, hey) I feel the change a comin'
(Hey, hey, hey) See that train a comin'
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I ain't breaking
I'm scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the breathing
(Hey, hey, hey) The dying and the bleeding
Get out of my way
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels, I got demons
Baby, you can sleep while I dream, (hey, hey, hey)
when I dream (hey, hey, hey),
and I dream (hey, hey, hey)
I dream (hey, hey, hey)
(Hey, hey, hey) I can feel the change a come
(Hey, hey, hey) I can see that train a coming
(Hey, hey, hey) Uh huh
Can you see it? (Hey, hey, hey)
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

Outlaws Of Love
Bon Jovi, Sambora

In his mind he was a man, at least he thought he was
It's hard to understand how old is old enough
Yeah, she was his girl they met back in high school
And they ran off and got married 'cause they thought it'd be cool
They'll never see what you are to me
All that I want, all that I believe is

Chorus:
They say we're too young to understand
They don't know how it feels when I hold your hand
They say we've gotta to prove what we're made of
You and me against the world
Outlaws of love

The honeymoon was over, the money'd all been spent
Felt like he was kidnapped, his ransom was the rent
Spent too much time crying, holding onto pride
He talks about a promise, he'd look her in the eye
No time to cry, living on the run
We never know if our day will come

Chorus:
They say we're young and don't understand
They don't know how it feels when I hold your hand
We'll save our dreams before they turn to dust
They'll be no surrender for
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love
Outlaws

You know it ain't easy to sink or rise above
These days you're two paychecks away ain't that simple enough
Now I hope we can laugh when we look back on these years
We'd say about the hard times still sinking from our beer

Chourus:
They say we're young and don't understand
They don't' know how it feels when I hold your hand
Each day we gotta prove what we're made of
You and me against the world
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love

Good Guys Don't Always Wear White
Bon Jovi, Sambora

You say you don't like my kind
A bitter picture in your mind
No, it don't matter what I say
I hear you bitchin' when I walk away
I'll never be what you want me to be
You tell me I'm wrong but I disagree
I ain't got no apology
Just because I don't look like you, talk like you, think like you
Judge and jury, a hangman's noose
I see them in your eyes

Chorus:
Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white

You judge a man who don't stand in line
Just because he ain't on your side
You know the man who wears those shoes
If you cut me don't I bleed like you? (You know I do)
I don't know what you've been told
Can't buy guts with a pot o' gold
A rich man's poor if he got no soul
Rich man, poor man, beggar man, king
All that shit don't mean a thing
Do you know which one's behind those eyes?
It's all a disguise

Chorus:
Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


guitar solo - 

Hey baby,
whose side you on?
You think you got it all figured out
where we belong
Forget all about your dark from light
Day from night
Wrong from right

Chorus:
Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
You know, good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
Tell your Mama, baby
Good guys don't always wear white
Don't always wear, don't always wear
Don't always wear, don't always wear
Don't always wear, don't always wear
White

We Rule The Night
Bon Jovi, Sambora

We walked through the sunshine, 
we walked thru the rain
As endless as time the thoughts will remain
We'll take what we want
You take what you need
We are the targets, you better believe
Whoa, whoa, No one can save you, there's nothing to say
Whoa, whoa, Deception's the name of the game

Chorus:
We rule the night
Only the strong will survive
There's no wrong, there's no right
We rule the night
We rule the night
We'll never give up the fight
Where the wrong is alright
We rule the night

All is for one and one is for all
If we take the fight then you take the fall
You run from the shadows but they call my name
You search for the truth but your search is in vain
Whoa, whoa, No one can save you, there's nothing to say
Whoa, whoa, Deception's the name of the game

Chorus:
We rule the night
Only the strong will survive
There's no wrong, there's no right
We rule the night
We rule the night
We'll never give up the fight
Where the wrong is alright
We rule the night
We rule the night

- solo - 

Whoa, whoa, when you're looking for someone to blame
Whoa, whoa, I know you'll remember my name

We rule the night
Only the strong will survive
There's no wrong, there's no right
We rule the night

We rule the night
We'll never give up the fight
There's no wrong and no right
We rule the night
We rule the night
We rule the night
We rule the night
We rule the night
